VANSA intends to constantly question the work we do, its value, and the value of arts in society in general.


STUDY integrates learning from members and others to better develop VANSA processes and programmes, and encourages self- and co-learning for creative practitioners and for the organisation itself. This serves as the key evaluative core of the organisation.

ArtsCollaboratory is a network of organisations in the ‘majority world’/’global south’ that serves as a space of collective imagination, organisational education and collaborative projects.

Territories is a project exploring access and radical sharing of the arts, and its broader role in society. Territories continues in collaborations with our partners in Colombia, Mexico, Cameroon, Mali and Kyrgyzstan. This project is part of Arts Collaboratory.

VANSA hosts research and development meetings once a month with invited members and individuals from our broader ecosystem.
